How large is the nano tank? I agree with jer77, anemones need someting ATLEAST 30 gallons in my opinion and it depends on the species. Most will outgrow that.

Looks like some sort of Cup Coral to me, perhaps an astrangia sp. IMO, it doesn't look like a Cynaria.

Aleveopora. You can tell the difference because it has 12 tentacles on each polyps, whereas gonis have 24.

I used to get liverock from my LFS before they started charging and arm and a leg for it.

You can go a little cheaper by adding 1/2 base rock, 1/2 live rock. You will sacrafice a nice look for a...

Sorry. :(

Check the air vent...it's entirely possible. But, also give it a few days in the tank. They will normally hide when first introduced. I assume the tank is already cycled too, right?

You can leave it in, if you want. Just be careful to prune it and not let it get out of control. Macroalgaes can easily go "sexual" in a tank (ie: release their gametes) and cause real havoc on the...

You can avoid the cycle by just letting the rock cure in a seperate container for a while, I use a rubbermaid. That way you let it die off in there before you add it to your tank. Also gives you a...

They aren't all the beautiful color on Melev's page. :) Some are drab brown, darker, brighter. If that snail is flatter, more conical than most other common snails like the turbo, it's a Sundial....

Sounds normal, not much you can do to speed it up, and ignore the low pH during cycling. It won't be correct until after your tank has cycled. :)

I agree. They can easily damage their tissue beacuse of the sharp edges of the head. Make sure nothing is rubbing it. If you have the coral on a rock, move it to the sandbed.

Heliacus sp. snail, aka the Sundial snail. They are predatory zoanthid eaters. So, if you have zoos in your tank I'd take this guy out.

My guess is that it's definitley from a vermitid worm. They can be tricky to see sometimes.

You can just take the crown out and chuck it, as far as I know. Be careful when you move the duster and...

I agree. Those are diatoms, are common in new tanks, and will go away one day almost as quickly as they appeared.

Is the whole black thing part of it or just the greyish part?

If the entire black part maybe some sort of flatworm or...

Don't see why it would be a problem. Quartz is a safe mineral and sandblasting sand is used frequently in FW tanks.

Yeah, that's really not that long in the grand scheme of things. My guess is that your water paramters are off from your LFS's and the tang is suffering from the shock of the differences. That's what...
